They’re rioting in Africa. They’re starving in Spain. There’s hurricanes in Florida, and Texas needs rain./The whole world is festering with unhappy souls. The French hate the Germans, the Germans hate the Poles./Italians hate Yugoslavs, South Africans hate the Dutch. And I don’t like anybody very much!/ But we can be tranquil and thankful and proud, for man’s been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud./And we know for certain that some lovely day, someone will set the spark off...and we will all be blown away./They’re rioting in Africa. There’s strife in Iran. What nature doesn’t do to us...will be done by our fellow man.
